Conference Series: In Global Transit

Against the background of the continuing debate on global migration and its consequences, the German Historical Institutes in Washington, D.C. and London, in cooperation with the newly established Branch Offices in Berkeley (GHI West), New Delhi (India Branch Office) and Peking (China Branch Office), have developed a series of conferences on historical flight and migration research.

This way, the Max Weber Foundation aims to contribute to the analysis of these socially relevant and currently much discussed topics. The great potential provided by the new Branch Offices results from the possibility of bringing in new research approaches and perspectives from their host countries which are situated in regions particularly relevant for migration and flight. Additionally, “In Global Transit” strengthens the network between the new Branch Offices and the long established institutes of the Max Weber Foundation in Beirut, Istanbul, London, Moscow, Paris, Rom, Tokyo, Warsaw and Washington, D.C.
